Can WebIssues work with PHP 5.1?

Submitted by dollarb on 2012-04-25

I have a client that wants to use a tracking system and after installing WebIssues on my own server and playing with it I think it is a great solution for their needs. However, the client's current web host has PHP 5.1 installed and they refuse to upgrade to 5.2 at this time. My client does not want to move from this host so my question is can WebIssues be made to work with PHP 5.1.6 instead of 5.2?

I tried installing it anyway and when I go to the install page I get an Internal Server error: The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Your administrator may not have enabled CGI access for this directory.

Thanks for any help on this!

WebIssues does not support PHP 5.1. Note that the current version of PHP is 5.4 and even version 5.2 is no longer officially supported.
